This Valentine’s Day, many couples filled theaters to see the new romantic movie, Endless Love. For most women, it was a great experience. For most men, well, it made their significant others happy.

Endless Love is about a beautiful and wealthy girl, Jade, and a boy, David, who have just graduated high school. Over the summer, they fall deeply in love with each other. The only problem is David is not up to Jade’s father’s standards. Jade’s father, whose son died two years earlier, is overprotective.

Jade’s father tries whatever he can to keep them away from each other so she can achieve their dream of Jade going to Brown University. The more they are kept away from each other, the more wild and reckless the relationship becomes. The film has drama that will keep anyone entertained, and the ending is unexpected.

This is a romantic movie designed to bring tears to the eyes. It is a tale of two lovers and the lengths they will go to stay together. It shows teenagers’ first love, and it reveals they will do anything for one another, even disobeying their families. It is one of those movies that will bring a person back to a first love and the crazy things young people do.

The acting is well done, and the movie overall is done with good taste. This movie can be put with love stories like The Notebook and The Last Song.

Endless Love is a typical romantic movie that girls/women will drag their significant others to, and singles will go watch with their friends. The women will love it, and the men will be happy they made it out alive.
